Nema Enclosures manufactures quality custom and standard electrical enclosures that comply with the safety standards of the IECEx global certification system IEC 60079-7 standards for the safe use of electrical enclosures in potentially hazardous areas.
These hazardous areas include locations where people are exposed to flammable liquids, vapors, gases or combustible dusts that could present a possible risk of fire or explosion.
IECEx is an international certification organization that works to standardize product & service explosion protection compliance in hazardous areas around the world.
IECEx certification framework is based on IEC and ISO International Standards, specifically for enclosure IEC 60079 standards for the safe use of enclosures in potentially hazardous areas.
It benefits countries whose national standards identical to, or else very close to the International Standards. The IECEx concept and practice work to reduce trade barriers caused by different safety compliance criteria in various countries, and help industries to open up new markets. The goal of the IECEx System and its Certified Schemes is to ease international trade of Explosion Protected Equipment (termed Ex equipment) by eliminating the need for duplication of testing and certification, while preserving safety.
